The work was over, and the guy very matter-of-factly told me to pay up Rs.700. Startled, I raised my eyebrows, then blushed when I realised how awkward my reaction had been. I meekly said I’d paid only Rs.400 the last time. The guy thought for a moment, then agreed at Rs.500.
I handed over the note bearing Gandhiji’s picture. He seemed to be laughing at me! I flashed a toothy smile, at the dentist, and walked back home.
Who would have thought we need to bargain with a dentist over a tooth-filling ?
Crazy times, we live in!
Say Cheese ?!
